STUDIO VISIT IN SPAIN - 1/20/2013 - Félix Reyes and Rosa Castellot, Santa Lucia de Ocón

This is the first post in a series of studio visits made to artists living in Spain during the time that I am living in La Rioja. We were invited to spend a Sunday afternoon at the home and studios of Rosa Castellot and Félix Reyes. Reyes' life size figural works in different mediums, including bronze and wood, can be found in many public spaces around Logroño. Right now there is a large installation on exhibit at the Museo Wurth.      www.museowurth.es

Castellot's work are nature-based graphite drawings. A new series focusing on the Rio Ebro will be featured in a one woman show this April in Briñas.   www.rosacastellot.com

We spent a wonderful afternoon eating "Sunday Paella" and walking around the landscape of the valley of Ocón. The artists' home is the kind of old farmhouse called a "cuadra" where the bottom floor was living quarters for the animals. Félix and Rosa have restored it and it is filled with their work and works by their friends.
